Why does it say that my phone isn't rooted properly? Also, can it get bricked?
I got some malware, which my antivirus couldn't detect, so I installed an app called "Stubborn Trojan Killer" from the google play store. It told me that in order to stop the malware I had to root my phone and gave me instructions.
In the instructions it included two root programs, one is "KingRoot" and the second one is "KingoRoot". I tried the second one first, but it didn't work, so then I tried the first one and it did, but the other antivirus programs I installed kept labeling it as a virus, plus I read somewhere that the program itself is shady, so I decided to uninstall it.
So getting to the point, I read somewhere that rooting your device can get it "bricked" (would be great if someone can explain how you ACTUALLY brick your phone), so I got paranoid and downloaded an app called "Root Checker" It checked if I had root access, but it didn't give me a clear yes or no, it just said that it isn't installed properly and now I'm paranoid that it could get bricked or something.
How do I fix this? I'm really new to rooting and all of that so I would appreciate some help.
My phone's name is Allview Soul Style, and it runs Android 5.1.
